Man Indicted for Two Bank Robberies

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for robbing two area banks in May 2014.

Lynn Brown, 55, address unknown, was charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.

Today’s indictment alleges that Brown stole $2,000 from Commerce Bank, 118 W. 47th Street in Kansas City, Mo., on May 10, 2014.

Brown is also charged with stealing $1,900 from Bank of America, 1104 S.W. 7 Hwy., in Blue Springs, Mo., on May 20, 2014.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney William L. Meiners. It was investigated by the FBI, the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department and the Blue Springs, Mo., Police Department.
